Dump Road Outlaw 2012
50 mph in a straight line down a chip sealed road. This is how they used to race in the 90′s. 2012 is a new day an age and skateboarding has come a long way since the 90′s. Downhill skateboard races nowadays aren’t considered exciting unless there are turns and what not.
Not dump road though. The race has been running for quite some time and is part of the infamous Cali Outlaw Series. No sponsors, no permits, just a group of friends both old and new meeting up to race a road nestled in the Badlands of California.
The race is exciting and each finish is a photo finish. The packs are so tight and it actually takes some strategy to win.
Some try to push out to the front of the pack and stay there while others try to get into that persons draft in an attempt to pass them somewhere along the way down the almost 1 mile stretch of road.
Riders pay their entry fees, run a few practice runs followed by the race runs. Heats are run, riders are eliminated and finally it becomes time for the finals. Everyone cheers on their friends and a champion is crowned.

When you have over 70 skaters all bombing down a road at the same time it is not your normal session. It is actually pretty epic. The kinda experience you remember for a long time.
I saw everything from people giving each other wedgies on the way down the hill to mini play fights pushing each other on skateboards going 30 mph down the hill.
Everything about it was just that much more fun with more people. An experience, an adventure, another chapter to the book of skateboarding.
Everybody had memories of the year before when a police helicopter showed up and followed us down the entire 3.5 mile run. It was like a scene out of a movie.
Well until next black friday keep it adrenaline fueled! – Leecifer
We went to meet up with some local shredders at a secret location nestled in the California Coast. This spot was so breathtaking we had to put down the shred stick to snap some photos. Here’s what we got.
As the sun was setting we took advantage of our last hour of light.

October 1, 2011. Words alone can not describe how insanely gnarly and fun this event was. Muir skate is always pushing the limits farther and making everything bigger. This was no different. The event featured an insane 4′ tall kicker ramp called the Ishmael where riders were pushing the limits. Muir Skate knows how to push the sport with innovation and a lot of progression happens at their events. The course looked like a snowboard park. A ride on rail at the top. Then a variety of different size jumps to hit on your way down the hill.

The Ishmael was the highlight of the event. It propelled riders into orbit as they soared over onlookers heads. Big 360′s, 180′s, no comply’s and launch after launch off the ramp. There’s no way riders didn’t go home at the end of the day without bent trucks, bruised elbows, hips and sore feet/knees.
Duke Degan was trying for 360′s and 180′s all day off the big kicker
We started off the day headed toward Loretta St but soon altered directions after receiving word that the first hill was shut down by the po po 5-0 keeping us all safe. The event was moved to pump station the back up hill where we were not bothered.

We don’t remember who the winners were but we can tell you that Daniel Luna, Jimmy Riha, Duke Degan, Seth Brown and ANdrew Schumaker were all shredding super hard, trying new tricks and putting on a show.

The event also featured a longest slide competition, a hard wheel competition and a soft wheel competition which had an open class and a grom class. – Leecifer

Clear Kryptonic 80MM/80A Wheel Review
Manufacturer – Kryptonics, Santa Fe Springs, CA
Model – Clear kryptonics 80MM/80A
Price -$16 – $25
I threw these on my Freebord after riding no other wheels besides the Slashers. I found that this soft wheel rides buttery smooth and it feels like your riding some fresh powder. Not necessarily built for speed I have found that this wheel is great for just cruising and throwing down some fresh carves and slides. I just could not get going fast on these, even with no slides or speed checks the wheel would not take me faster than 35 m.p.h. This is a very soft wheel and it wears down quickly. Also any slide over 25 m.p.h will put your clear Krypto’s in serious jeopardy of flat-spotting. I have been throwing these wheels on my board whenever I just feel like doing some cruising.
There is nothing wrong with riding the clear Krypto’s. They definitely are not good as the Slashers but at less than half the price it’s a much better deal than the slashers are. I will be ordering more of these. Great price for a decent to good wheel. I was surprised by how smooth the ride was. For $15.99 they are a great deal, but I don’t know how much more I would be willing to pay for these though.
16 Fresh Clear Krypto’s. I’m ready to roll.
Feel free to put your opinion on these wheels below.
On May 15, 2010 off the 15 freeway in Poway, Ca a group of around 30 skaters gathered around, antsy, to shred the slalom-style race course designed to test the speed and skill of some of Southern California’s top longboard riders. The top section of the course was set up with cones and opened into a narrow pathway leading down a canyon where riders hit over 30 mph as they set themselves up for a full speed tuck and pinned it to the finish.
Groms also had their own class, but the rules stayed the same, as both groups were able to compete in either a singles or doubles, or both. The singles competition was every man for himself and the doubles competition was designed for riders to team up with another competitor stopping the clock after both the riders made it to the finish line.
This made for a very exciting race as many riders were unable to attain the goal of making through the slalom section without knocking over any cones. A few came back from the finish line with bleeding elbows and ripped shirts, while others riders navigated through the course with style and ease.
